pleated bow skirt polka dot tie neck blouse cropped cardigan bow pumps

I am in love with this outfit!  This polka dot tie neck blouse is ADORABLE.  I have enough polka dot tops but this one was just a must and only $13!  Sizing runs on the smaller side.  It fits similar to a 00p at Ann Taylor.  The sleeves are just slightly too long but not bad and I can wear them fully bottoned and it looks fine.  Material is thin and the quality is what you would expect for this price point.  I don’t mind it and probably will have to re-sew the buttons on at some point in time but that’s ok.  I think it’s so cute layered under a cardigan or blazer for work.

Also, this pleated bow skirt was from this past winter and I’ve worn it countless times since.  I’m still amazed that it’s only $12.  The quality is not that bad and similar to some of my other skirts that cost 4x as much.  Sizing runs small and the waist on an XS is about 12″ across (24″ waist).  I adore the structured and thick pleats – holds it’s shape all day and does NOT wrinkle.

If you love gingham, you are going to love this skirt!  Sizing runs EXTRA small so I would recommend sizing up 1-2 sizes. I can barely zip up size XXS and need to exchange it for a larger size or maybe even two!  It has pockets and a waist tie.  Will be super cute for spring and summer.

  1. Hey Annie! Love all of your outfits! Is the floral dress from SheIn more red or more magenta flowers? In your pics it looks more magenta (hot pink-y) but on the site it looks more red. Thanks!!

  2. Hi! Would you mind if I share your blog with my twitter
    group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would really enjoy your content.
    Please let me know. Thanks

  3. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability
    and appearance. I must say you have done a great job with this.
    Also, the blog loads super fast for me on Internet explorer.

    Outstanding Blog!

  4. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyway, just wanted to say excellent blog!
